Maud Cowan gave a fiucly-rendcreel recitation at Supt. Knoepllcr's lecture ,Tas. Blunt, and family were over from BuUivun visiting in Fenton and Hurt. The normal school opens a week from Monday. In spite of close times the prospect is for a big attendance. Invitations are out for the wedding of Miss Kathryn Bacon and S. X. Wai' of Wesley, the date being Sept. 4. The county clerk's office is suffering from the general depression. There hasn't been a legal paper filed this month. Hugh Conner of Rome, Ind., is the principal of the Burt schools for the Doming year. He has moved in with his family. Rev. Flannigan was in Algona a ouple of days last week. He had been up to Buffalo Center to dedicate a new church there. The second story of theCowles building is being fitted for the Odd Fellows. They will have one of the finest halls in northern Iowa. The B. Y. P. U. will serve ice cream at the residence of Mrs. Henry Winkle next Tuesday evening, Aug. 27. All are cordially invited. Miss Lillio Ranks is getting many compliments from Livermore,. where she has a large music class, and where she sings in the churches. Miss Nettie Edmunds rode to Burt one day last, week on her bicycle in 60 minutes. By road the distance is about 12 miles. She will soon equal her broth- Jos. Thompson is getting over his railway accident very slowly. He cannot stand on his feet yet, but is able to get into a chair. He is still at C. H. Blossom's. The Methodists have dedicated eight new churches in the Algona district ;his year. Rev. Bagnoll goes to Burch- inall a week from Sunday to dedicate a new one there. Capt. Dodge has bought the Patterson house, which stands at the north end of Dodge street. It is a pleasant jliice and will make a comfortable home 'or him and his family. The city stone pile looms up in front of the city water works, and we are •eady for the tramps. A carload of ime stone from Mason City has been bought for them to pound on. Next Monday evening Prof. Elmer will give his stereopticon lecture be- 'ore the teachers and the public. Like the rest of the excellent course provid- d by Supt. Reed it will be free to all. J. J. Wilson went to Des Moines Monlay, the state convention being one object of the trip. He has missed only one state convention since he came to Algona, and his old friends always look or him. The newspaper business must bo lourishing at LuVerne. Bro. Sinclair las bought the News within the past wo weeks, and now it is reported that ie was married last week. We con- ratulate. S. A. Thompson is back after two months in Michigan, Wisconsin, and at he fair. He says one always comes jack to Iowa better satisfied than ever that this is the premium farming country of the world. Marsh Stephens enjoyed a visit from iis brother Monday. His brother has >een a farmer in Humboldt for the past 5 years and is a very successful one. Marsh was down town, and reports nothing exciting up north. Marriage licenses have been issued ;o Joseph Ross and Elizabeth Schmeig, "ohn Beck and Alice M. Tibbetts, ilobt. H. Fulston and Mary Dotson, Samuel H. Smith and Lillie G. Tyler, T . L. Tibbetts and Edith E. Fish. Prof. Shoup, who is conducting the nstitute, went over to Emmetsburg 1 >iday to speak to the teachers there md then to Primghar Saturday. Prof. Shoup is an able institute worker, and i brother of United States Senator ahoup of Idaho. A punctuation mark often makes a big difference. THE UPPER DES MOINES ms a letter from a boy applying for a iituation. Here is the concluding sen- ;ence: " Write as soon as possible and ,ell me I am 16 years old and my pa- •ents live in ." Dominick Stufflick, the hard hitter of Prairie township, was in the Dubuque wreck last week with J. R, Jones. He was in one of the cars which rolled lown the bank, but came out unhurt. !t takes more than an average railway vreck to knock out a Prairie citizen. The Bancroft Register says a .gentleman advertising a Minnesota school got cold comfort there, and adds: The institution may be a very good one, but while the residents of Kossuth have liaft'ee's business school so handy it surely cannot draw heavily from here. The school board held a meeting Sat- u'day evening and selected Miss Erne Stutsman of Des Moines to teach in the place left vacant by Miss Chesley. Mis Chesley goes to Elmore, where she i paid $10 a month more than she wa getting here. Miss Stutsman come highly recommended. F. E. Smith sold his home, the old A F. Call property, to Theo. Chrischilles last week, and it is rumored that J. T Chrischilles will take it about Oct. 15 Mr. Smith has no definite plans for th future, but may leave Algona. Wo hope he will decide not to change, bu that he will get a new place in town. The Winkel family were never all to gether until Sunday. John, the oldes of the children, had left homo before the youngest sister was born, and when he returned his oldest sister had mar ried and moved away. Sunday thej all met for the first time in one place, n rather curious and very entertninin. meeting. Letters remain uncalled forin Algona poatolllco for Miss Carrie A. Anderson Geo. Butt, Mrs. Mnry Dennison, W. G Garrison, Mrs. Fred Johnson, Mark Kelley, Ole Olson Klockstend, Anna Harrison, Nettie Page, Henry Funk 1C. G, Jackson. Frankio Warner. Par ties calling for any of above please say "advertised." The DMT postofflce contest is settled at LuVurnc. Mr. Ditrr lias his commission and took popppseion last Saturday. Tho protest of the people didn'l cut any figure at Washington against the recommendation of our ' local moguls. Wo arc bound to congratulate Mr. Darr on his success, for he has won against big odds. State Supt. Knoepflor w;is greeted by a big audience Thursday evening, and gave his lecture on "X." The X did not cut much figure in the address, which was on the dark mid bright sides of the teaching profession. Mr. Knoep- lier is not a brilliant speaker, but is a careful and methodical worker in his oiliee and stands well with the teachers. With the present issue of this paper another financial quarter is reached, and business patrons will be waited on soon. The natural inference would be that the close times would cause an abatement in advertising, but Algona's live business men take a different view of the situation and wisely make more use of newspaper space than before. They know their business. Another change has been made among our barbers. Last week Gus Pensko made a trade with the tonsorial artist of Whittemore, Mr. Williams, by ivhlch he takes the Whittemore shop, a,nd Mr. Williams gets the shop here under the bank. Elmer Wilbur works for Mr. Williams after this week. The new man here is said to be a good one, while Gus will give satisfaction over west. Presiding Elder Black joins the third party movement. In a letter to the Des Moines News he says: Let a citizens' convention be called at Des Moines it the earliest suitable moment. We must meet the National Brewers' association in thoroughly organized pha- anx. Let us organize!! Organize!!! Three cheers for Larrabee or any other Brainy, trusty leader. We must save Drohibition in Iowa. Bro. Shaffer of the Burt Monitor was down Monday and patronized a cloth- ng store here unexpectedly. He made ;he mistake of trying to sit in a chair .n the Courier office and when ho got up he either had to stand with his jack to the wall, or take chances of ar- est, or buy a new pair of trousers. A man who visits a democratic newspaper office these times wants the " never rip," double X, duck overalls. When about three miles northwest of Burt last Saturday the kingbolt in Julius Pleth's carriage broke. As the ! ront whnels pulled out the carriage ;op fell forward in some way and caught Julius so that he was dragged on the _round about 12 rods before he could get loose. His shoulder was hurt and 10 was lamed all over, but no bones were broken and he is out all right again. Prof. ChaJTee gave his lecture, "The Teacher's .Business," at Emmetshurg, Webster City, and Fonda last week. Friday morning next he gives it at ~iivermore, and in the evening at Algona. Tuesday of next week he speaks it Northwood, Wednesday at Forest City, Thursday at Estherville, and Friday at Clarion. The Emmetsburg Democrat speaks very highly of the lecture ihere. He should have a big audience it Algona. All old-time Algonians will turn out it the Congregational church tomorrow evening to hear the lecture by Rev. Will F. Barclay. It is now more than i dozen years since he presided over Algona college or held the Methodist )ulpit here, but the memory of his jenial countenance has not faded, and 10 will be heartily welcomed. His ecture will be one of the best of the nstitute course and the church should 3e packed. Bro. Hinchon has opened the campaign against Mr. Sessions with a poem )ut with no candidate. This is the nethod employed against Mr. Smith .wo years ago, and if its efficacy is to be udged by the results then, we should jhink that a candidate and no poetry ivould ho in order this year. Bring out our man, Bro. Hinchon. You can't make a campaign without a candidate, md you can't hurt Mr. Sessions any un- 11 the people know who he is running igainst. It takes two to ma' re a campaign. The nomination of Frank D. Jackson mused rejoicing in the home of J. R. Jones, Away back when Frank was a joy Mr. and Mrs. Jones boarded with iis mother at Jessup, and have never ceased to remember her and her son vith pleasure. In those days Mrs. Fackson kept herself well posted in po- itical and public affairs and drilled '''rank thoroughly in speaking and de>ate, and so probably laid the founda- ion of his present success. He has several times visited at the Jones home n Algona, and a lasting friendship has jrown out of the association of those years. The Malono, N, Y., Farmer has the Allowing item of interest: Capt. A. A, Brunson, who enlisted in Company H, 106th New York Vols. and was afterwards chosen captain of Company I of ,he regiment to succeed Capt. Shields, s visiting old friends and familiar scenes in New York and Vermont. He resided when a young man at Lawrenceville and enlisted as a resident of that ilace. After the war, in the spring of 1865, ho went to Iowa and since that iime has spent such ; a busy life there thtvt he has not been east till now, making this as a continuation of a trir to the world's fair. Capt. Brunson's home is at Algona, where he is a mem her of a prominent real estate firm am county clerk of the county. He state: that the villages here have changed so that one would hardly know them, b« many country roads still look as famil iar as though the scenes had been preserved on canvas. Mr. Brunson wil spend the month . of Augug. in the east. The programme of the Social Union club for Friday evening consists o Prof. Chaffee's lecture. Coming as it does during the institute this lecture forms ono of the course open to the teachers, and will be of special interest to them. The general public, however will feel a curiosity to hear the professor, and the church will bo wel filled. The professor's toast at the editorial banquet gives assurance of n spicy and entertaining address. He has spared neither money nor effort to freely advertise Algona's school, and is delivering this lecture generally in this section of the state. Mrs. Lucia Gale Barber, who read tht) poem at the dedication of the Iowa building in Chicago last October, read it again at the Congregational church Monday evening. It tells tho story ol Columbus in a pleasant manner and was written by S. II. M. Byers of Osku- loosa, until lately a consul' to Switzerland. Her rendition was very fine, as was that also of two other selections. But the feature of the evening was her exhibition of tho poetry of motion according to Dolsarlo. Mrs. Barber is a master in her lino, and is doing excellent work in the institute. Tho church was filled with an appreciative audience. The democrats held their county convention last Wednesday and selected J. W. Hinchon, Ph. Dorwoiler, H. Simpkins, C. L. Lund, E. G. Rich, W. A. Patterson, W. P. Giddings, and Alex. Dorweiler as delegates. The state convention comes today, and much uncer- .ainty will attend the gathering. Many democrats went Monday, and all yesterday. If Mr. Lund and Mr. Patterson went on tho same train they had a chance to talk over that LuVeVne correspondence together. All doubts about tho leadership here in Algona were settled by the choice of Bro. Hinchon is chairman of the delegation, and wo ire afraid that will cut some figure in ,he postoffice contest.

At tho formal reception tendered tho touchers last week Miss Mildred Tuy- or's response to the address of welcome vas highly appreciated. It was as 'ollows: Citizens of Algona: It lias boon tho cus- jorn lor several years for some humblo .eaclier to receive tho aypoiiitmont to respond to tho address of welcome tendered ;o the teachers at tho formal opening exercises at each annual institute.

I want ,o say to you that the press notices in your city of our appearance and conduct have always been the most flattering, and I assure /ou that those comments have silently had ihoir influence for good in our ranks, fhose little courtesies and attentions which iclp to lighten the burdens and cares of the ;eacher in her work, are a source of un- >ounded happiness. Your tender compliments will have a lasting and beneficial of- 'ect upon the rising generation. The grand •esults which we will achieve from tho itrongth and encouragement of those tokens vill come back to you in after years like bread cast upon the waters. It is truly a great pleasure to be with yon again this evening for reasons already tated. It is here wo are surrounded by i-iends.

Wo welcome the familiar faces of our instructors whom wo have learned to respect ,nd admire. Wo congratulate Supt. Koed n setting before us such an extensive in- .ellectual feast for our benefit and enjoyment. We are grateful to him for his earnest woi'k in our behalf.
